Avon Volunteer Fire

Task Force Structure Fire Response 32 Brian Lane 1/16/11

Avon volunteers responded to a call for a structure fire at 32 Brian Lane and arrived to find an attached garage of a large single family dwelling showing heavy smoke and fire. With the fire starting to overtake the attic space and threatening the whole structure the Task Force 54 Mutual Aid Plan was put into effect bringing apparatus and man power fro the surrounding towns of Simsbury, Glastonbury, and Farmington in to work and cover. Though the residents out of the house, fire fighters had to rescue the family dog and a large macaw parrot early on. With the house clear of occupants interior crews aggressively attacked the fire and contained it to the garage and living space above it and the attic and second floor of the main house. The stubborn fire would take over an hour to bring under control with the structure sustaining heavy damage even though crews put a tremendous effort into the stop. The fire marshal was on the scene and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
